the stacey and mutch families

the MUTCH family is related to the Stacey family through our Grandmother and Great Grandmother, Sylvia Susan Mutch (nee Stacey), who was the fifth daughter of George W. Stacey, born in West Ipswich, Queensland on 11 July, 1860. George is believed to be either the first, or one of the first children registered as born in the state of Queensland after it became a State of Australia after separating from New South Wales (proclaimed by Queen Victoria in June 1859). George lived to 105 years old.

Sylvia Stacey married Colin Alexander Mutch, father of Ian Alexander Mutch, Grandfather to David Alexander Mutch and Great Grandfather to George Alexander Mutch, and thus the Stacey-Mutch relationship began.
